Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Challenge No. 50#Tanka: VOICE & WATCH * VIDEO ADDED!

Colleen’s weekly prompt words:

Voice & Watch

A tanka today

Passing precious time
Watching old home cine films
Tears and laughter flow
Voices echo from the past
Stirring memories so sweet

Shit Stevie Says

Good Shit, bad shit, funny shit, sad shit. Maybe I'll inspire you! Or maybe I won't... Perhaps I'll talk about worldly matters, or maybe my not so subtle obsession with aliens, or (if you're really lucky) I just might one day give insight on how to make the worlds best sandwich. Guess you'll only find out if you read. So sit back, grab a glass of wine (because there is a 100% chance I indulged in one while writing), and enjoy. Welcome to the enigma that is my brain. My name is Stevie Jackson, and I have shit to say.
